This publication discusses the classical foundations of box conception, utilizing the language of variational tools and covariance. It explores the bounds of what could be accomplished with merely classical notions, and indicates how those classical notions have a deep and critical reference to the second one quantized box concept, which follows on from the Schwinger motion precept. Its pragmatic view of box thought makes a speciality of concerns that are often passed over from quantum box concept texts and catalogs effects that are usually tough to discover within the literature.
